An Equivalent Seriously WTF Moment

Slow poker news day, so we're sitting around racking our brains trying to figure out what an equivalent "seriously wtf" moment would be to seeing a shirtless Lee Watkinson with panthers on a billboard outside McCarren International in Las Vegas...

...and that moment would be sitting on a sofa in 1983, watching Mtv, and this fucking thing comes on for the first time.

haha: Song Review by Mike DeGagne
In 1983, "Mr. Roboto" climbed all the way to number three, making it Styx's second million-selling single after 1979's "Babe," which had a two-week stint at number one. The single was taken from the Kilroy Was Here album, Styx's attempt at a concept piece about the perils of music censorship in the not-so-distant future. Unfortunately, Dennis DeYoung's idea wasn't portrayed as clearly as he would have liked it to be, despite extensive touring and on-stage dramatics which tried to present a theater-like approach to the album's tracks. Two songs emerged from the wreckage, though, with the soft rock radio ballad "Don't Let It End" making it to number six, and the comic book-styled "Mr. Roboto," complete with a slight hint of '70s disco emanating through its body. DeYoung's over-dramatic vocal approach seemed to work and work well, as Styx found comfort on the singles chart while at the same drifting farther than ever from its progressive roots and mid-'70s arena rock sound. Sporting an appealing pop melody, with its mechanical sounding chorus only adding to the song's farcical feel, Styx had a surprise hit on their hands. This time, the amicability came in the form of some catchy keyboard riffs instead of Tommy Shaw's guitar virtuosity or the sugary lyrics of a piano-guided love song sung by DeYoung. Although Kilroy Was Here never gained the seriousness that Dennis DeYoung was looking for, "Mr. Roboto"'s singular achievements more than made up for it, even finding its way on to an automobile commercial in the late '90s.
